Valdosta - A new, innovative science museum is coming to South Georgia.

SciTrek closed its doors in Atlanta back in August, but will reopen at Valdosta State University this summer.

The science museum will no longer be open to the public, but instead will be used as an educational training center for students and teachers across South Georgia. Hands-on science and math training will also be available for VSU students.

"Instead of a museum setting where children go in and view artifacts, we're going to create a center where students actually do, its a hands on concept," said VSU President Ronald Zaccari.

The new SciTrek museum will be located in VSU's education center.
